Nalby in Madrid: Best performance by any player this year?

Nalby rocked the #2, #3 and #1 in a row. Impressive also his results.

6-1 6-2 over R. Nadal
6-4 7-6, straight sets win over N. Djokovic
1-6 6-3 6-3 over R. Federer in a masters final when he was down a set

Nalby at his best is the 2nd best player in the world imo.

Best performance by any player this year me thinks.

Amazing, considering how the rest of his year has gone.

Yeah, I think so. I think his recovery from 4-6 0-4* down against Birdshit contributes to make it the most amazing tournament for any player this year.

No, the best performance was Federer at the AO.
But this one defenitely a good second.

Australian Open - 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010
Roland Garros - 2009
Wimbledon - 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012
US Open - 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008

Re: Nalby in Madrid: Best performance by any player this year?

yea eventhogh djokovic did the same these 3 wins are sweeter. I wasnt expecting Nalby to win this until until i saw his performence against Djoko. It was more unexpected than Djokovic beating Roddick

It's not a major. People were saying that about Novak this summer.
It's a whole different game if Federer is preparing for the tournament.

What Nadal does in Paris is much more impressive. No one else is beating Federer at a major.

Re: Nalby in Madrid: Best performance by any player this year?

Yeah, this week performance by Nalby was amazing. Altough, Rafa, Fed and Djoko were not at their best this week. It is possible that high amount of matches by those players is taking its toll while season is coming closer to the end. Nalby played only half amount of that, so it is possible he is very fresh at this point of season
I hope David will keep this form next season, so that we have more serious contenders for all titles. Together with healthy Ancic (I think he can make breakthrough next year) they will make season much more interesting.

Way to go Nalbandian!

Re: Nalby in Madrid: Best performance by any player this year?

Beating federer indoors is a huge challenge.

This is more impressive than joker's win in canada.

although joker's win over nadal in canada was better than bandy's here in madrid.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

Nadal is the better player on this surface. It was also an expected win and far from a surprise unlike Nalby's win this week.

It is exceedingly impressive. I still go with the tardish Federer's win in Australia, without dropping a set.

Now if you ask about most UNEXPECTED best performance, this one takes it.
